Red Bull is in our neck of the woods again! This time Red Bull Sound Select put together a nice line up of artists including Philly 360° Creative Ambassador Khari Mateen, Mike Taylor and Azealia Banks as the headliner for the show on Friday, July 26 at Voyeur. Red Bull continues to push boundaries and create their own lane in creative culture. This initiative boasts that it “celebrates local music and the people who push it forward.”

I wanted to take the opportunity to give you a closer look into the artists that will be performing and if you haven’t claimed your free ticket already, sorry it’s too late.  

Azealia Banks – Known to be outspoken, this New York native does not hold her tongue for anyone. Among the frontrunners of female emcees, Banks creates her own space with free flowing lyrics over high energy, bass thumping beats. Banks is said to be releasing her debut project Broke with Expensive Taste sometime soon and she has worked with some industry vets to put together music that will blow your mind.

Khari Mateen – The multi-talented instrumentalist and producer has been showing us that he is just as comfortable in the limelight as he is behind the boards. From his intimate sunset performances to traveling across the country, Mateen is no doubt a one-man show. He sings, plays multiple instruments and captivates the audience. You can check out his EP on kharimateen.com.

Mike Taylor – His sound is fun and unique. Infused with elements of Pop, rock, and soul Taylor’s music sounds like the soundtrack to a great teen movie, i.e. Ferris Bueller, just of today of course! His style is colorful and eclectic and I have had the opportunity to see him perform in Philadelphia before. You’re definitely in for an experience! His latest single “Downtown kids” is currently available on iTunes.

James’ Arts & Culture Revival:

Celebrate July 4th Weekend Philly Style!

As the birthplace of the nation and home to one of the world’s most vibrant creative scenes - there is no place better to celebrate the Fourth of July than right here in Philly! This weekend, Wawa Welcome America presents an exciting weekend celebration jam-packed with fireworks, parades, entertainment, food and of course the largest free concert in America!

 

Saturday, July 2

Staring this Saturday, you can kick off your Independence Day celebration by satisfying your sweet-tooth at the Super Scooper All-You-Can-Eat Ice Cream Festival at Penn’s Landing. For only $7, this three-day long ice cream festival will let you indulge in as much of your favorite flavors as you can handle! If you stop by the festival on Saturday evening, but sure to checkout the fireworks show over the Delaware River at 9:30 p.m.!

 

Sunday, July 3

It's not a part of Wawa Welcome America, but it's definitely one of my picks for this weekend. Questlove of The Roots will be on the ones and twos along with Diplo, DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Spinna and J Rocc for PSK (aka Philadelphia Sound Konnoisseurs) for a pre-Fourth of July Jam at Voyeur. Get your tickets here, because this show will definitely sell out.

 

Monday, July 4

The party will shift into high gear with the Welcome America Party on the Parkway - over seven blocks of family-friendly games, entertainment, food vendors and much more.

The Welcome America festivities will culminate with the Philly Fourth of July Jam and Grand Finale Fireworks on the steps of The Philadelphia Museum of Art!  This spectacular show is the nation’s largest free concert and will feature Philadelphia’s own Grammy award-winning band The Roots performing with an all-star lineup that includes Philly 360 Creative Ambassador DJ Jazzy Jeff, Earth, Wind and Fire, Michael McDonald, Estelle, and of course our own hometown hero and Philly 360 Creative Ambassador ?uestlove. The finale show will also honor the music of Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff with a special 40th Anniversary tribute to their iconic “Sound of Philadelphia”.  Of course, the concert will end with a dazzling fireworks lighting up the sky!
